Welcome to OrthodoxWiki!
Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Please note that OrthodoxWiki is always in development, so not everything works quite right yet. You can help, though!
OrthodoxWiki is a community-edited encyclopedia of Orthodox Christianity. Articles are created and edited by our members, and so everything that we do here is subject to review and revision. The result is a true consensus product, with every interested editor contributing his own knowledge and writing skills. As such, when you feel that criticism of an article is warranted, we encourage you to join in and fix it! Don't worry about breaking anything or doing something wrong—the other editors here are happy to jump in and help you learn.

| PLEASE read carefully the section of the Style Manual titled OrthodoxWiki:Style Manual (Point of View). |
Also please note that other editors will assume that you have read the Style Manual (our official editing guidelines). If you're wondering why an edit was reverted, an article renamed, or any other unexpected changes were made by another editor, check there.
Please also take a few moments to edit your user page by clicking on your name here, so that we can know a bit about you: User:Chrisg. Feel free also to add your picture to the OrthodoxWiki:User gallery.
If you are uploading images, be sure you're doing so legally and according to OrthodoxWiki policy. Failure to abide by policy may result in your images getting deleted without warning.

Moving articles (e.g., Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia and New Zealand)
In the future, if you'd like to change the name of an article, please use the move tab at the top of the article rather than creating a new article and then changing the old one to a link to the new. This preserves the article's editing history intact.
In the case of this article, I was able to piece the history back together with deletion and moving, but those options aren't fully available to non-sysops. The easiest method (which is also available to everyone) is just to use the move button. Thanks! —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 20:28, December 28, 2005 (CST)
Greetings! Thank you for your contributions. I was wondering whether you had a link or a source for the population estimate for the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia and New Zealand. The original link cites 7,525; you changed the number to an estimated 37,525, but the link remains, now contradicting rather than supporting. I'm guessing that source is from 2001, but I may be wrong. The only other source I could find online is from 1996: 3,969. —magda (talk) 07:46, December 29, 2005 (CST)
Would you mind engaging in the discussion on Talk:Gibran (Rimlawi) of Australia and New Zealand before continuing to change the spelling everywhere? —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 13:28, January 3, 2006 (CST)
Regarding the parishes - there are a couple of parishes on OrthodoxWiki that haven't made it onto the Antiochian.org.au website: St Nicholas, Mayfield (NSW), Invercargill Mission (NZ), Hamilton Mission (NZ); and also, one that hasn't made it to OrthodoxWiki - St Cuthbert, Rowville (Vic). I didn't add the last one because I thought that you probably knew what was going on and had reasons, but just in case I thought you should know. cheers, -- — by Pιsτévο talk complaints at 16:07, February 7, 2006 (CST)
With recent edits, should he be listed as Bishop or Archbishop? I know that you're "closer to the action" (if you'll excuse the term), but there really should be one marker. Also, his nomination for elevation (in northern autumn?) and whether he was actually elevated is ambiguous. Thanks, — by Pιsτévο talk complaints at 03:58, February 27, 2006 (CST)
Yes, it is ambiguous, isn't it... chrisg 22:22 2006 February 27 (EAST)
